I don't know if I can believe it! This whole time-well the last 2 years in the nursing program just seemed like I would never be here. Each semester was so exhausting and hard. but YAH! I am officially done with the RN program and it is such a relief! I don't know if I would do it again. I enjoy nursing, but the last 2 years of school have been rough! 

Now the huge debate....
I got accepted to the Bachelors Nursing Program at Weber...I don't know if I should do it or not?
Their are people pushing me both ways. I don't know what I should do!? :S
  • We are moving up to logan, but this program only requires me to meet every 3rd week-and sometimes I hear I can do an online assignment instead. There are plenty of people who live in Logan and commute down that are in the program right now. 
  • Jesse will be way busy with school, so me being in school will keep me busy as well so I don't distract him..but it also means I might not be able to work as much-which I would be the source of most the income for us while Jesse is going to school. But most people in the Bachelors program still work full time.
  • My main thing in life is going to be a full time mommy (no I am not pregnant right now) and I am going to be a part time nurse. I will work full time till we have kids but after that just as needed. So Jesse says my nursing in like a back up plan-only if needed. But of course I have to keep up my license and work every now and then. 
  • As of right now you are required to have your bachelors for any management position-which I will most likely not be doing. But they do say a lot of hospitals are requiring it and that is where the future of nursing is going. I would hate to have to go back later in life and get it when I have kids. If I am going to get it I might as well now. So its now or never. 
  • This program allows you to take a break as long as you get in done within 5 years...
  • It would be easier to get a job having your bachelors but I am almost positive their will always be open RN jobs I just have to accept that they might not be my first choice.
  • More education never will only make me a better nurse
  • Being completely done with school sounds delightful! 

Decisions, Decisions! I hate having to make decisions! 
I will pray and hope for a clear answer!

  1. Congrats on the graduation Marissa! Sorry we are so late! Great job!!

    I think you should totally get your Bachelors. Do it now while you're still in the mode. It's so hard to think of starting up again, and if it's something you want to do, do it now so you don't regret it later. I know you'll do what you think is best though!!
